Dressed in a maroon jail outfit and limping into court with the help of a cane, Nathan Barksdale did not look Wednesday like the notorious heroin dealer once sentenced to 15 years in prison for the torture of three people in a West Baltimore public housing development. As he sat at the defense table, Barksdale waved to two women who walked into the room. One blew a kiss before they sat down. It was light moment for the aging criminal before a federal judge would send him back to prison for the next few years.

A Baltimore man went free Thursday after almost six years in prison, as city prosecutors dropped murder conspiracy charges against him because a federal investigation led to the conviction of another man.

Mooney, 26, was not in court for the final hearing, and the action happened so quickly that his family — sitting in the back row of the courtroom — did not immediately realize what had taken place.

While reading court documents recently, I had one of those "Wait-What?" moments. That's where you're reading along, or listening to an explanation, and you suddenly say, incredulously: "Wait. What?"

Absurd as that sounds, this apparent transgression is described in the city of Annapolis' official responses to a false arrest case.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was trending on Twitter Wednesday afternoon for all the wrong reasons. In an eight-hour period, Rice's image suffered severe damage -- the kind from which it might never recover. It was the result of two devastating media developments. It started with TMZ releasing video from an Atlantic City casino early in the day, and was followed by publication of a summons saying that Rice hit his fiancee with his hand "rendering her unconscious" at the casino Saturday night.

A Sparks-based insurance company that was seized by Delaware regulators faces possible liquidation in a wild case - one with dueling allegations of fraud, forgery and a vendetta, plus a sanction involving an Aston Martin sports car. Delaware's Department of Insurance said Monday that Indemnity Insurance Corp. is in bad financial shape, and efforts to rehabilitate the company to avoid liquidation "have not been successful.
